[ Call for Papers ]

Complex networks are networks with non-trivial topological features (scale-free degree distribution, high clustering coefficient or small-world properties). They sit at the edge of chaos between regular lattices and fully random networks, and can capture many natural and social phenomena, e.g., gene interactions or social relationships.

They are an example of complex systems, a paradigm that has been applied in the past to sports and which is the focus of this first workshop on Complex Systems and Sports

The focus of the first edition of Complex Systems and Sports (CS-Sports 2011) is on the use of complex networks to model and analyze interactions in (mainly) team sports. Related topics thus include (but are not limited to):

Both theoretical and applied works related to the topics of the workshop are sought. The workshop is addressed to computer, social and sports scientists, interested in unraveling the dynamics and emergent patterns of games in team sports.

Papers will be reviewed and assessed for relevance and quality. A booklet with accepted papers will be distributed at the workshop. Authors of accepted papers will be invited to extend their contributions for a special issue of a journal (to be announced).


Submission is now open through EasyChair. It will run through May 31th.

Submission will have a maximum of 10 pages, following the ECAL format, which is contained in these templates:
